Gallery

Welcome to my gallery, here you will see completed works of art alongside works in progress and small sections of work. Each piece is painstakingly hand embroidered. I love combining the imagery of fast things like polaroids with the length of time it takes to stitch one piece. You can purchase prints and cards from my shop and some of my orginals are for sale at https://athaygallery.co.uk/claire-mort, please message me if you would like more information about these. It is also possible to follow my progress on instagram.
